87 years old madala from venda still going strong & claims to go 6 rounds a day with 10 wive

AN 87-YEAR-OLD polygamous venda man, who has sired 108 children, says he still has the energy to be intimate with six wives in a day among the 10 he currently has.

Tauzeni Mujaji, who lives with his 10 wives and some of the 108 children at his homestead in venda Village South constituency is ready to welcome more wives. He once had 14 wives but four passed on.The octogenarian says while he might be facing challenges to adequately provide material needs for his big family, he is capable of meeting the co_njugal needs of all his wives.“If they (10 wives) were not satisfied with me they would not be here anymore. I make sure they are satisfied and I am capable of that. I might now be facing challenges in meeting the financial demands of this big family because I do not have requisite resources such as enough land to till, but I meet their bedroom needs.

“For your own information, I can bed six wives in a day among the 10 that I have. I used to have 14 wives but four passed on. I can still accommodate more wives if I find the ones that I want. Would you turn down a beautiful woman if she comes your way?” Mujaji jokingly asked as he chuckled.His fifth wife Netsai Tirivanhu, the youngest among those present when The Manica Post visited their homestead, confirmed that they were all satisfied with their octogenarian husband.

“It is true. He is a great man and we all love him. He has managed to keep us satisfied. No one among us is complaining,” said Tirivanhu who has six children with Mujaji.

Unlike in other polygamous marriages, Mujaji says he gives adequate time to all his wives by visiting them regularly in their respective houses.

“I have more than enough time and energy for them (wives) all. I make sure I visit them all in their houses. After all, they are all my houses and I have to visit them,” he said with much authority in his voice.

With 24 huts and six two-roomed houses to accommodate the polygamous family, the Mujaji homestead is more of a community on its own.

A traditional healer, who traces his roots to the neighbouring Mozambique, Mujaji was ironically the only child of his now deceased parents and is on a mission to ‘produce relatives for himself’.
